Srinagar, Feb 24: Advisor to the Lieutenant Governor,Â Baseer Khan, today convened a review meeting regarding the functioning of the Industries and Commerce Department.
The meeting held deliberations on several issues concerning the working of the department, like taking over land, status of MSME units and clearance of pending MSME units at SKICC, Srinagar.Â Director, Industries & Commerce, Nazim Zia Khan and District General Managers (GMs) of Kashmir division besides other concerned officers attended the meeting.
The Director I&C gave a presentation regarding land bank, new industrial estates, recent land acquisition, land to be taken over, Udyam registrations, PM Employment Generation Programme and achievements, formal registrations under MSME sector, incentives under Centre and UT packages besides issues related to KPDCL.
While describing GMs as a â€œbridge between the UT government and entrepreneurs,â€ Advisor Baseer Khan emphasized upon them to facilitate entrepreneurs in clearance of registration of units at the earliest.
The Advisor asked the officers to conduct regular visits to the fields, to improve work culture and to evaluate status of works on a weekly basis. He cautioned the officers against any laxity in their approach towards their duties.
The Advisor directed the officers to conceptualize a â€œcomprehensiveâ€ plan for success of the â€˜One District One Productâ€™ program. He instructed the officers to visit units to evaluate viability and check that saturation should not happen at any industrial estate which may affect other units. He impressed upon the officers to complete the registration of pending units as, he said, the UT government has undone the previous NOC rules.
The Advisor was informed that the total land transferred to the department was 6414 kanals and 8 marlas, and that the land taken over is 6078 kanals. Besides, he was told, the margin moneyÂ disbursed under PM Employment Generation Programme during 20-21 ending January had been Rs. 2490 lacs.
